Record numbers through the doors at Expo 06

Expo 06 in full swing at the TSB Bank Arena on Wednesday 18 October 2006.

Over 1000 people attended the Wellington Conference Expo last month, an event which seeks to showcase the wide range of suppliers to the Meetings and Events sector in the Wellington region. Event organiser, Elsa Bradbury, Manager of Business Development for the Wellington Convention Centre was delighted with the turn out, “Over 85 exhibitors had their products and services on show and we are pleased to be able to make this opportunity available to the industry.

“Many attendees return each year for a chance to refresh their knowledge on what’s happening in the industry. They expect to see a lot of the same faces as well as new ones; the pattern has been about a 25% changeover in exhibitors each year which is working for everyone.”

Over the last six years the expo has continued to gain positive word of mouth, as a result, Elsa anticipates few changes for next years event, “We’ve established a successful formula for the expo which will continue. One of the few things we will introduce next year is a scheduled time for tertiary students to attend.”

Expo 07 will be held on Wednesday 17 October at TSB Bank Arena.
